Warriors stars Kevin Durant and Draymond Green had prominent runins with referees last season.

They weren’t alone.

Players and officials clashed throughout the league. Whether the tension was actually worse or just seemed worse, the problem hit critical mass. The NBA sent executives overseeing officiating to meet with each team.

Nets forward Jared Dudley on The Woj Pod:

I heard the worst meeting was the Warriors. I heard it was the worst meeting, like they were turning their back on them. That’s what I heard.

This is the type of rumor that’s so juicy and fun, people want to believe and spread it – whether or not it’s true. That includes me.

And Golden State added DeMarcus Cousins!
